I live in Pittsburgh, only a few miles from where this happened

...and the local media coverage is absolutely infuriating! Every article sees the need to mention that the shooter "was afraid Obama would take his guns" and that he "voted for John McCain." It's completely irrelevant to the shooter's motives and the only reason why they are mentioning it is to make gun owners and any defender of the Second Amendment seem like violent, irresponsible nutjobs. The people exploiting this incident to further their own political beliefs are no worse than the Westboro Baptist Church Fools who use tragedies to spread their message.
